Why Can't I Slay the Dragon?

I have got to let go of the cause of the pain

He has broken my heart again and again

I've been too forgiving

I need to start living

Oh lord please stop him from lying



I really can't cope with these thoughts in my head

That tell me I'll come home and find him there dead

My head is spinning

The heroin is winning

Oh Lord please stop him from dying.


He has taken my money, and I've lost my house

He stolen my spirit and left me a mouse

I wish I was dreaming 

When I awake screaming

Oh lord please stop me from crying.

    Thank you Tepo, I wrote this a long time ago. It wasn't until my daughter was born that I found the strength to break away. Just a shame I lost my house!!
